Super Mario Odyssey - Powering Up the Station and Powering Up the Power Plant

How to complete the Metro Kingdom objective.

Powering Up the Station and Powering Up the Power Plant are objectives you'll encounter about halfway through Super Mario Odyssey, which follow on from Super Mario Odyssey - Getting the Band Together: band member locations and where to find the Drummer, Bassist, Guitarist and Trumpeter.

You'll find our full walkthrough for them here, whilst you can head back to our main Super Mario Odyssey guide, walkthrough and tips hub for plenty more on all aspects of the game!

Powering Up the Station

While facing the New Donk City Hall, turn left and follow the road along to find your next objective marker. Throw Capy at the big manhole cover to move it off manually, then jump into the hole to start the next part of your adventure.

You're now in the Underground Power Plant, complete with classic underground Mario music. Follow the route around the glass structure and enter the Warp Pipe at the end. On the other side, use the turbine device to make the green block spinning (or you can use Capy).

Ride it so you can reach the platform to your right. Take out the Piranha Plant, then throw Capy at the green block in front of you to send it spinning. Use this to reach the far platform.

Turn right, take out the Piranha Plant, then turn left, then turn right. Use Capy to move both the top and bottom green blocks, and use them to reach the platform on the other side. Watch out for the flies, turn right, then throw Capy at the turbine.

This will make the set of three green blocks to move together. Let it make a couple of revolutions before riding one of the ends over to the other side.

Walk through the Warp Pipe, speak to the mayor, then deal with the giant Piranha Plants on either side (throw your cap in each one's mouth, then jump on its head). When both are toast, a Moon (Powering Up the Station) will appear in between them.

Need more help? Our Super Mario Odyssey guide and walkthrough goes through every objective in each Kingdom, while our Power Moon locations can help you track down the likes of Cascade Kingdom Power Moons, Sand Kingdom Power Moons, Metro Kingdom and New Donk City Power Moons and more collectables. We also have Purple Coin locations for each Kingdom, and if you want to know what to spend it on, we have a hats list, outfits list, stickers list, a souvenirs list as well as a music list to kit out the appearance of both Mario and the Odyssey. Once you've finished the game, check out the free Balloon World update, too.

Powering Up the Power Plant

This objective could not be any easier. Run up to the giant green Power Plant machine, climb to the top and do a Ground Pound on the big red and yellow button to bring power back to New Donk City.

Next up: Super Mario Odyssey - A Traditional Festival
Also see: Metro Kingdom Power Moons
And: Purple Penny locations

When you return to the New Donk City Auditorium, Mayor Pauline will ask you if you want to take part in the Festival. Choose 'Yes' to begin the next part of your adventure.
